Sean Combs aka the one and only Diddy has been arrested after allegedly attacking his 21-year-old son's strength and conditioning football coach, Sal Alosi, on UCLA's athletic campus on Monday.
The 45-year-old has been charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. He was released last night after posting $50,000 bail.
According to TMZ, following his son Justin Combs' practice, the entrepreneur went to have a word with Alosi in his office. Sources claim the protective father believed Alosi "was riding Justin, screaming intensely at him" during practice and felt it might have been personal, so he wanted to address it.

Alosi was reportedly on the phone when the rapper went directly to his office. He supposedly told Diddy to "hang on," but things escalated from there. Additional sources claim the hip-hop mogul was told to leave immediately or campus security would be called to remove him.
Alosi allegedly snapped after Diddy himself threatened to call the police, and that's when the musician attacked the coach with a kettlebell. Diddy, however, claims he never tried to hurt him, but simply held it up in a defensive position to protect himself from the coach's attack. UCLA sources say that is completely false and that he swung the deadly weight, barely missing Alosi.

Diddy could potentially be telling the truth, as the coach has a bit of violent history himself. He was suspended from the NFL back in 2010 after tripping a Miami Dolphins player on purpose during a play. At the time he was on the coaching staff of the NY Jets.
Sources say everything was caught on video between the coach and "helicopter dad," as the UCLA staff refers to Diddy (due to his constant hovering over practices) — and it's just a matter of time before it gets out.
